About person:sir Halford John Mackinder (1861-1947)ISNI
Abstract:Halford John Mackinder (1861-1947) decided to prove himself as a traditional 'open-air' geographer by leading an expedition to climb Mount Kenya in 1899. Subsequently he wrote this diary about the ascent, but it was never published. Mackinder's observations range over the fields not only of geology, zoology and botany, but also of anthropology and topography.
